Laws of separation -- too harsh?

A rather heated row has broken out in the comments section of Ma'ariv/NRG after an experienced, brave (and rather frum-looking) brides' teacher wrote that the rabbis should officially shorten the period of sexual separation between husbands and wives each month, by abolishing the 'seven clean days' which the 'daughters of Israel' took upon themselves as an extra stringency.
What's interesting is the number of religious readers coming out and openly (or at least, as openly as you can on an anonymous Internet forum...) supporting her....
